Join us for the fourth webinar in Lung Foundation Australia’s free webinar series, Lung Cancer Connect. The six-part series provides patients, carers, family and friends, as well as interested health professionals, with information, advice and support about living with lung cancer.

The webinar will be hosted by Lung Foundation Australia’s Lung Cancer Support Nurse, Louise Underhill, and will focus on the importance of exercise and diet for lung cancer patients, so they can live well during treatment, manage symptoms and side effects as well as aid recovery from treatment.

Participants will be able to watch the webinar live and ask questions from the comfort of their home; all you need is a computer and internet access. Once you have registered, we will send you a simple step-by-step guide to log into the webinar.

Please note: webinar time is 4pm – 5pm (ADST)
